Happy Mother's Day: Make Yourself Some Cookies

Talking about Mother's Day gifts and treats on a Mama blog is a funny thing. Chances are, the one who would be getting you breakfast in bead or treating you to a spa day isn't reading this blog.

Therefore, I say for Mother's Day, treat yourself to a batch of cookies. Chocolate cookies. Happy Mother's Day to you! (or to a Mother that you happen to live close to)

1. Snowflake Cookies One of my favorite cookie recipes from my mom. A simple chocolate dough rolled in powdered sugar (because they don't have enough in them) before they bake.
2. Chocolate Mint Marvels Another basic chocolate cookie, but these ones are topped with an Andes mint when they come out of the oven.
3. Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten-free) If your on a gluten-free diet, these are the closest thing to a real, homemade chocolate chip cookie you'll ever eat.
4. Milan Cookies These mimic the Pepperidge Farm classics, only the filling is a little oozy. I like that.
5. Mexican Chocolate Chip Cookies Another chocolate cookie with cinnamon and pepitas (toasted pumpkin seeds).
6. Chocolate Chunk Cookies Everyone has their favorite go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. This one is one of my favorites. Secret ingredient? Malt powder.
7. Almond Joy Cookies Another gluten-free goodie that tastes like the name says.
8. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars = Chocolate chip cookie + cheesecake. Need I say more?

Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely women out there :)


  1. Chocolate ship + cheesecake... oh no you do NOT need to say more - I am TOTALLY sold! YUM! They all look so good!

  2. There are going to be some happy Mommy Tummy's on Sunday for sure! And really, chocolate cookies with cinnamon? I am gong to get FAT off those!! THANK YOU!
